Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a docter but the sick."
There is nothing wrong with preventative medicine for a health and well being of our society. If it is sin that is making us unhealthy, then it would suggest we work to prevent sin before it can make us and our community sick.
More the reason we need heal the sickness of poverty and homelessness now, in order to truly enjoy the health and well being of all creation. The sin is not those in the street, but all the reasons they are on the street in the first place. We can prevent those things from destroying a healthy human being and a healthy, thriving communal economy.
If you desire to help transform an unhealthy community, then help to prevent someone from becoming homeless in the first place.
